iPhone 5: Die ersten Reviews sind online

Nach der offiziellen Vorstellung des iPhone 5 gab es einige enttäuschte Berichte über das neue Smartphone. Es wurde des Öfteren kritisiert, dass es sich bei der neuen Generation nur um eine Evolution handelt und Apple keine neuen Innovationen zum Vorschein bringen konnte. Immerhin haben sich die Informationen der Gerüchteküche bewahrheitet und somit haben sich für zahlreiche Kunden die Erwartungen erfüllt. Darüber hinaus konnten bereits die ersten Benchmarks überzeugen und die Hands-On-Videos haben Lust auf mehr gemacht.

Zwei Tage vor dem Marktstart des neuen iPhones durfte nun die Presse die eigenen Reviews und Testberichte veröffentlicht. Die US-Medien haben ausführlich Bericht über das neue Apple-Smartphone veröffentlicht und wichtigsten Aussagen haben wir hier zusammengefasst:

Engadget schreibt:

Still, the iPhone 5 absolutely shines. Pick your benchmark and you’ll find Apple’s thin new weapon sitting at or near the top. Will it convince you to give up your Android or Windows Phone ways and join the iOS side? Maybe, maybe not. Will it wow you? Hold it in your hand — you might be surprised. For the iOS faithful this is a no-brainer upgrade. This is without a doubt the best iPhone yet. This is a hallmark of design. This is the one you’ve been waiting for.

AllthingsD meint:

Apple has taken an already great product and made it better, overall. Consumers who prefer huge screens or certain marginal features have plenty of other choices, but the iPhone 5 is an excellent choice.

Techcrunch schlussfolgert:

If you have an Android phone and have been waiting for a big iPhone update to explore or re-explore the device, now is the time. And you Windows Phone 7 users who are getting screwed in the move to Windows Phone 8, you may want to look as well. And if you’re still a Blackberry user, well, good luck with that. I think you’re beyond my help.

Those worried about the talk of “disappointment” surrounding the iPhone 5, I suggest you simply go to an Apple Store starting on Friday and try it for yourself. My guess is you’ll immediately recognize just how ridiculous all that bluster actually is. The iPhone 5 is the culmination of Apple doing what Apple does best. This is the smartphone nearly perfected.

Das Fazit von Slashgear:

Competition between mobile platforms keeps the industry moving and innovating. That can often present itself as a surfeit of innovation: feature upon feature, piled high in an all-singing, all-dancing device. Right now, the iPhone 5 has the best balance of everyday usability and performance, without the distraction of functionality that is clever but unintuitive. It’s an area in which Apple excels, and it’s the reason the iPhone 5 is one of the best smartphones on the market today.

John Gruber äußert sich über die Rückseite:

And compared to the 4/4S’s glass back, it should prove far more durable. (Would you not love to know the number of cracked 4/4S glass backs Apple has replaced?) I believe this is a big reason why Apple has not updated its bumpers for the iPhone 5 — this is a phone that was meant to be used without a case.

CNET resümiert:

Does this change the smartphone game? No. Other smartphones beat it on features here and there: if you want a larger screen, go with a Samsung Galaxy S3. If you want better battery life, go with a Droid Razr Maxx.

But, if you want a great, all-around, beautifully engineered smartphone that covers all bases, here it is. Just like the MacBook is to the world of laptops, the new iPhone is one of the top three, if not the best-designed, smartphone around. It’s better in all the important ways.

Jim Dalrymple von The Loop:

The most important point of Apple’s larger iPhone screen is that it’s not too large. […] My thumb reaches the top of the screen to tap on options and hit the back button without shuffling the phone in my hand.


The iPhone 5 is by no means perfect, and we’re lucky there are a lot of really good smartphones on the market.

But only one great one.

Im Gegensatz zu den ersten enttäuschenden Berichten scheint Apple aber im Endeffekt alles richtig gemacht zu haben und ein gelungenes Apple entwickelt zu haben.
